Fodor's Review

Built to accommodate visitors to the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, this busy hotel is considered by many to be one of the best bets on Union Square for comfort without extravagance. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the recently gussied up (albeit still modest) lobby overlook cable cars on Powell Street. The moderate-size Edwardian-style rooms, some with huge walk-in closets, have high ceilings and were recently remodeled. Though a bit dated, the small, clean

bathrooms have deep tubs—rubber ducky included. Fodorites appreciate the pillow menu and the friendly service (chat up the restaurant's bartenders to find out new local eats). The pleasant Restaurant Luques serves breakfast and lunch, plus dinner (Wednesday through Saturday); complimentary coffee, tea, apples, and cookies are available around the clock in the lobby.
